Nagasaki Ken Bijutsukan (Art Museum)Nagasaki

What distinguishes Nagasaki Kenritsu Bijutsu Hakubutsukan from other art museums is its collection of Spanish art with a strong Christian influence. The Suma Collection was built up during World War II by the late Yakichiro Suma, who was an ambassador to Spain. It includes the print John the Baptist, which is said to date from around 1500. With works by such 20th-century artists as Picasso, Miro and Dali, this art museum is believed to have the largest collection of Spanish art in all of Japan. Also housed here is Taisei Okozu, by an unknown artist, which has been designated an Important Cultural Property by the national government.
